The Ugly Truth

It is hard to face reality.
Reality that not everyone is as kind as you.
That although your heart may stretch for miles and go way out on a limb, others cannot see past their shirt sleeve.
It is okay that I am angry. It hurts. It hits me with the fact that... well, I don't understand it fully, so I don't know what it hits me with.

On second thought, it hits me with this:
If I am good, and decent, then I deserve good and decent.
If I am hard working and passionate, then I deserve respect and appreciation.
If I cannot make others see that I am these things, then maybe they will never see.

That is reality. and it is not pretty.
